UN chief in Ramallah says two-state solution cannot be abandoned

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres says that a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict remains the only viable option as he made his first visit to the West Bank since taking office.

Guterres spoke after meeting Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah in Ramallah following talks with Israeli leaders the previous day.

“I want to express very strongly the total commitment of the United Nations but my personal total commitment to do everything for a two-state solution to materialize,” he says. “I have said several times there is no Plan B to a two-state solution.”
